Sgt. Sean Murphy, a tactical photographer who's been with the department for 25 years, did not like the August cover of Rolling Stone — so he released his own images to Boston Magazine.
Murphy was on the scene in Watertown, Mass., the night Tsarnaev was apprehended for his alleged role in the Boston Marathon bombing.
He will have a hearing regarding his employment next week. The department has taken his badge, his gun, and his computer, and has ordered him not to speak to the press, according to Boston Magazine editor John Wolfson.
